Grandpa Told Me So

Lyrics

If you don’t get in the water you’re never gonna learn to swim
He said a snake is just as scared of you as you are of him
He could tell by the moon when the fish would bite
Seems there was nothing that he didn’t know
And as a kid I believed cause Grandpa told me so

He talked Daddy into letting me have my first car
I thought I was really something ’til Becky Thompson broke my heart
That first taste of love nearly did me in
Getting over her was slow
But I knew someday I would cause Grandpa told me so

He said life was made for you to live
The best love is the love that you give
There’ll be times when you wanna hold on but you gotta let go
And I live by those words cause Grandpa told me so

I promised him I wouldn’t cry when it was his time to leave
That’s the only promise I made him I couldn’t keep
He smiled from his bed and said we’ll meet again
Somewhere down the road
And I believe cause Grandpa told me so

He said life was made for you to live
The best love is the love that you give
There’ll be times when you wanna hold on but you gotta let go
And I live by those words cause Grandpa told me so

He said life was made for you to live
The best love is the love that you give
There’ll be times when you wanna hold on but you gotta let go
And I live by those words cause Grandpa told me so
